Easy hike from the Red Rock Canyon Parking lot. It is across the bridge and shares the same trail as Vimy Ridge and Twin Lakes I believe, you cut off earlier to the north to go to Goat Lake. It is marked easy just pay attention. It then proceeds to do steeper switchbacks. It is a little difficult at this point for the average person. Plan on this being a day hike, but always start earlier in the day if you can. Pretty lake at the top. Hiked in July and there was still ice chunks in the lake. Good fishing too apparently just get a park fishing license.
